Yemen: Hudaida hospital lacking medical supplies due to Saudi-led blockade

A doctor reported a shortage of medical supplies at a hospital in Hudaida as a result of the Saudi-led coalition blockade of Yemen, Sunday. The UN has also warned of a deteriorating humanitarian situation as a result of the blockade. «The blocking of essential medicine and vaccines and the lack of fuel arriving in Al Hudaydah port will impact millions of people that are already suffering from a... Еще lack of health services and multiple preventable diseases,» the UN wrote in a statement. Up to one million children are at risk of contracting diphtheria following an outbreak of the disease in Yemen, according to the UN. The country now has more than 120 diagnosed cases and 14 deaths in the past week. On November 5, the Saudi-led coalition announced it would block all land, air and sea access into Yemen after a ballistic missile fired from Yemen was intercepted over Saudi territory. The rocket was fired at the international airport near the Saudi capital Riyadh. The Saudi-led coalition has denied aid access to Houthi-held ports, like Hudaida, until the UN sets up a tighter system to control any flow of arms into the country. The UN has reportedly dismissed the condition.
